Suspended In Language: Niels Bohr’s Life, Discoveries, And The Century He Shaped,

Suspended In Language: Niels Bohr’s Life, Discoveries, And The Century He Shaped, written by Jim Ottaviani, and illustrated by Leland Purvis, with Jay Hosler, Steve Leialoha, Linda Medley and Jeff Parker

Synopsis: Einstein looked up to him, the Nazis tried to abduct him, his institute in Copenhagen hosted just about every Nobel prize winner in physics you can name (and then some), and Winston Churchill considered him a dangerous, dangerous man. His friends and enemies agreed: Niels Bohr was more than the father of quantum mechanics — he was one of the most important figures of the 20th century. The Tony Award-winning Broadway play “Copenhagen” barely scratched the surface… Suspended in Language tells the complete story of Niels Bohr’s amazing life, discoveries, and his pervasive influence on science, philosophy, and politics. Told in an engaging and accessible mixture of text and comics, it includes a full color supplement on how to teleport just like the pros do — and why you might not want to!

Published: August 2009 | ISBN: 978-0978803728

“Writer Jim Ottaviani and illustrator Leland Purvis relate [Bohr’s] adventures with rich visual flair, taking the reader alongside Bohr into outer space, inside the atom, or to a raucous Belgian physics conference. More surprising is the abundant wit and warmth of the book” – Discover Magazine
